Well as stressful as my life has been lately I decided I needed to go hit something so I found a cool gym right by myhouse to go to and tried out their mma class tonight. OMG, I feel like I got my butt kicked! My shins are all bruised and swollen, my thighs hurt, and the toes on my right foot are cramping up. I love it! :laugh:

One of the instructors told me he is like Matt's 5th biggest fan so I told him about this place and told him to come here. I knew it was the right gym for me when we could sit and talk about Matt and how he is going to kill Serra.

Anyway, I can't promise that I will be able to walk tomorrow and my poor patients are going to be upset that my hands are shaking when I go to get blood from them but it is well worth it. This gym has it all, tomorrow is boxing class. :punch:

I told him my dream was to be a cutman and maybe if I am really nice, he'll hook me up with something. :ninja: If I remember right I think he has a pro record of 15-1 himself. He seemed pretty cool. The other mma instructor was really great too. He definitely does not take it easy on girls. :happydancing:

Cool Amy! They just opened a MMA gym not too far from here, but I've also heard there's one in New Braunfels as well, which isn't far from here either. I was thinking about going and checking it out this summer when I have more free time.

Do it, do it!!! I am already thinking I may have to skip the 1 1/2 hour boxing class tomorrow night and just make the Saturday BJJ class. I just showered and I could barely get my arms up enough to wash my hair. :unsure-1:

I can't wait until I have the stamina to go to all the classes. It'll help me gain some weigh too. I can't gain fat so muscle is all I can hope for.

Giirrrrl, if you need some fat let me know! I'm working on decreasing the size of my butt as we speak :laugh:

The classes are awes tho, i did put on some weight over Christmas, but first I muscle up, then I lose the excess fat. Down 10 pounds so far this year, so what about 3.5 months yet. I think by summer I'll be down 10 more at a weight I would love to possibly fight at. We'll see. You'll gain a ton of muscle once you go 2-3x a week. I'm doing 3 hrs on M and W right now, and running on the off days....well, today was the first day of running :cool:

Will ya also take MT?

Amy, good for you! You're going to get so addicted. I still have problems with my toes cramping up doing Muay Thai. I guess it's getting used ot fighting barefoot. Love every bump and bruise you get, they're like awards:)

AS far as the cutman job, I think (from what I know of you) that would be an awesome job for you. You could revolutionize the job like Stitch did!

WAR AMY!

If you are referring to losing 20 pounds, it's just that I really need to, especially since I want to visit the beach a few times this summer.

And unlike a great majority of females, most of that was in my bum--some people can also store fat in their legs, belly, chest, etc. Most of mine was on the posterior. I'll still have a good one when done, just much more toned and subtracted with 20 pounds :)

My mma instructor said I could use his name here so I will shamelessly give a shout out to him for letting me get my butt kicked in his class. His name is Al "Spawn" Simmons. He's a cool guy and I know he's already been reading up on Matt's blog. He promised to check in here when he gets a chance.

So tonight there was a girl in the class who has been going a while. She was good. She tapped me out a few times when we rolled at the end of class but I didn't make it easy for her. I can't promise I will be able to move tomorrow after sleeping all night but I have JJ class tomorrow that I have to go to. I am so worn out, I had to order pizza and I'm so lazy that I didn't even call it in. I online ordered it. :laugh:

Oh I eat, it just doesn't go anywhere. You're going to Vegas? Awesome!!

I get to go to a Saturday class now that isn't on the normal schedule since they are gearing up for a competition. I figure I need to take off tonight and tomorrow and let my body rest and then jump into that class. It is just open mat time so it's a time for learning and trying new things I guess. I am really bruised and banged up. I see it all as battle scars and a sign of how willing I am to get in there and really do the class and not sit and giggle over it. The girls at work think I'm crazy. The guys at the gym all seem very cool and respectful but relaxed with me so it's great.

It's very cool that you've seen him fight that many times. I was at the first GSP/Serra fight in Houston and Matt was there but he didn't fight of course. I did meet him at an autograph signing that trip though. He doesn't remember meeting me there. I was just another crazed fan to him that day.

Went to mma tonight. Instructor did round robin, full gear, full force with the guys. I didn't have a mouthpiece or anything so he didn't hit me but had me in his guard so I could get a little GnP going. Then we went a round in the ring. I busted my right hand up pretty good. My right ring finger is swollen and went numb a while back. I can still move it so it isn't broken but it sure hurts like heck.

Oh and I got myself a cut man gig on the 16th!!! I can't wait to get my hands into a bloody mess and fix it up so the fight can continue.

I hurt my chest in class on Thursday. Hasn't gotten better, has actually gotten worse since I did class on Sat. and then drove 3 hours to my mom's yesterday and the 3 hours back today. Went to urgent care and the doc said I have costochondritis and that I am grounded from JJ and MMA for 7 days. There are 2 good things that come from this: 1) my bruises will heal in time for Vegas so I don't look like a battered wife and 2) I have proven that I don't break. :laugh:

Get better soon.

Just did some googling:

Costochondritis is an inflammation of the junctions where the upper ribs join with the cartilage that holds them to the breastbone or sternum. The condition causes localized chest pain that you can reproduce by pushing on the cartilage in the front of your ribcage. Costochondritis is a relatively harmless condition and usually goes away without treatment. The cause is usually unknown.


I had that before but I know the cause. I was cheating on my bench presses. I let the bar bounce off my chest for each rep.

Glad you're having fun! Did they give you any thing for the pain or are you jsut being a bada$$ and dealing with it?

I went knee to knee with my teacher on Friday night and now I got a big purple bruise on the inside of my right knee. I love the war wounds

The urgent care doc insisted on giving me pain meds. Mmmmkay....
